TitanFall Wins IGN's Best Game of E3 2013 Award

IGN report's: Hundreds of games battled. One game won.

The story is too old to be commented.

MGSV should have won this.

Philoctetes1131d ago

I hate to say this, but Titanfall is the only next-gen game I saw at E3 that I could see being a gigantic smash hit, like a COD or Gears. It has "mass appeal" written all over it.

I'm with you that I'd rather play MGSV or Watchdogs than this, but I can seriously see people who are on the fence about buying a next-gen console making the jump for Titanfall.

green1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

I completely agree. I am not so big on First Person Shooters and would rather play Forza 5 and The Witcher but when this game was shown, it simply screamed mega hit. Not only just a hit, but it has the recipe to dethrone COD as most popular multiplayer game.

Unless Respawn and Microsoft somehow screw it up, i do not see why TitanFall will not be a success.

No_Limit1131d ago

The more I see the Mechs, the wall running and jumping, jetpacking, landing on a Titan's head and shooting its brain out, the speed and even bringing down a Spaceship, this has potential to be the next big thing like Modern Warfare 1/2 before it. Can't wait for this game.

pedrof931131d ago

The game doesn't have a single player. I'm sure that is going to affect the story, it will be generic as it can get.

MGV5 trailer had repercussions throughout every gaming related website.

DARK WITNESS1131d ago

is that really a good thing or a bad thing?

EA finally have a cod killa, can we expect it to be milked yearly with every other shooter and their mum trying to make fps games with wall running and mechs?

I don't want this new gen to be a repeat of this gen with Cod being the benchmark that all other dev's try to beat.

personally I thought The division was the best game at E3 although I find it hard to believe they have only had it in production for a year. Destiny was 2nd.

Anway, to each his own I guess.. I just thought next gen would bring more interesting stuff to the table. It's not even started and the benchmark has been set by Cod with Mechs, i guess it is the mass appeal. who can argue with that.

starchild1131d ago

Sure, Hammad. We all know you only own a PS3. You are also always hating on the PC in articles so I highly doubt that you will be playing this on your imaginary PC.

MazzingerZ1131d ago

On the fence? I don't think that's an issue this gen

webeblazing1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

the game looks fun as hell but i wouldnt say that its the only games look that look next gen. devs are doing the same things as next gen its just the scope of the game can be better now on consoles whats. what funny is respawn (real infinity ward) maybe wanted to make this game when they was at activision lol. i know theyre banging their heads against the wall right now.

i hoped its priced at around 40 - 50 though since they maybe do like Guild Wars 2 with expansion packs

JokesOnYou1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

DARK WITNESS realisticly shooters this gen will just be bigger, better graphics, and hopefully some fresh new gameplay mechanics, same as any other genre so unless you want a bunch of all new ground breaking never seen before genres (that would be welcomed but understandably hard to do) then your criticisms can be applied to everything shown at E3. Spark is just building on LBP, etc.

NewMonday1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

a game without a demo shouldn't even be considered, all we see is a quick scene changing trailer and second long segments, loud noise and bright explosions.

IMOO the best showing is from:

MGS5
The Division
Destiny
Infamous SS

BattleAxe1131d ago

Titanfall looks great, but its almost like Respawn doesn't want to sell very many copies of the game. Its a shame that it will only be released on Xbox One and Windows 8 PCs and only from Games for Windows Live...how dumb is that?

Bf4 looks better than call of duty but call of duty is the highest selling game lol.

CRAIG6671131d ago

I have never liked mech type games but I really look forward to trying this out,it looks good and may just perhaps change my mind?

Feldman90001131d ago

Metal Gear wasn't playable at E3

Simon_Brezhnev1131d ago

If it wasnt a FPS i would try it but nope. Only way i play another FPS if i got it free from plus or something.

ABizzel11131d ago

It's based on which games were playable.

And if you give COD fans the first significant upgrade to their game then it's easily going to impressive regardless.

TitanFall didn't do it for me personally. It's looks solid to me, a mix of COD (average IMO) + Vanquish (a really good game).

This really isn't a system seller for me especially when its available for both PC and the 360.

Thats weird because if you read comments on any story from IGN everyone accuses the site of being pro sony. How strange that a microsoft game won.

fermcr1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

TitanFall is not a Microsoft game. It's developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA.

As for the game, it looks fantastic. I like what I've seen so far.

EDIT: To be released on Windows and Microsoft consoles... later on (probably!) on Sony consoles.

Burrito26a1131d ago

Oh you sure got me there. Its on a microsoft system. Pretty sure its also a windows 8 game as well.

Kingdom Come1131d ago

Actually, the game is releasing first on Xbox One, PC some time later and PS4 is a possibility.

zeddy1131d ago

used to be that ign was pro microsoft.

Mr_Nuts1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

Whats with the big hype over TitanFall, seriously it baffles me. All the fantastic looking games at E3 and it goes to a game which a COD4 sequel should of been years ago if they took on a futuristic setting. It's basicaly COD, with a sci-fi setting and new additions like mechs and jetpacks etc which you would obviously find in a game's sequel anyway

WatchDogs, The Division, inFAMOUS SS, Killzone SF, MGSV, Destiny, FFXV, Dead Rising 3 etc

Come on...after all the hype Respawns new title was getting over the years I was expecting something amazing and different from what they did with COD4. I was highly disappointed with it, it looks good but not that good if you know what I mean. Hell it doesn't even have a single player and it's a same old looking FPS.

HammadTheBeast1131d ago

I kind of agree. The only thing it has going is the accesability and cool stuff. Graphics are alright, just like CoD 2 at the beginning of this gen, but it doesn't really do anything new, just like CoD, but perfects a formula.

From what I've seen, plays exactly like CoD as infantry but with jetpacks and parkour, Mechs are similar to hawken.

In my opinion, Destiny, Division, or MGS should've gotten the pick just because of how innovative and overall good they are.

Hufandpuf1131d ago

Titanfall looks ridiculously fun.

starchild1131d ago

It doesn't look that much like Call of Duty.

Mr_Nuts1131d ago

The core mechanics are still there with added ones like Jetpacks, running on walls, mechs but the core stuff from COD is there.

It's like Black Ops to Mordern Warfare...they don't look alike but the core stuff which makes COD, COD is there.

4Sh0w1131d ago

Well what do you expect their forte is COD? I wouldn't expect them to do a Heavy Rain type game. If the worst people can say is they made another IP that completely outdoes their previous IP then thats success.

Blackdeath_6631131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

The Division should have won this easily. Titanfall is just another shooter nothing really impressive about it not much different from Hawken or any other scifi shooter

KingKelloggTheWH1131d ago

Honestly Titanfall would be one of the last games I'd choose,I mean Final Fantasy XV,MGSV,KH3,Destiny,The Division each one of these was far better.
